TECHinsight article about Yui Mizuno "Yuimetal" 17th Birthday
BABYMETAL member "Yuimetal" is celebrating her 17th birthday. Blessings messages in foreign languages including Japanese and English arrived one after another in their official Social Networks. There is also several tweets about "Becoming adult" with what seems to be mixed feelings from the fans who have known them from before their successful break.
*BABYMETAL (@BABYMETAL_JAPAN) on Twitter posted on June 20 with a familiar figure> "Happy 17th birthday Yuimetal!!"
Yui Mizuno has been a part of Amuse since 2007, working as a model. Later she joined the Idol Group Sakura Gakuin in August of 2010 and then took part of BABYMETAL as "Yuimetal" from November with 11 years-old. BABYMETAL's indie debut was in October of 2011 with the DVD Single "Doki Doki Morning", their Major Single Debut "Ijime, Dame, Zettai" was in January 2013. She has been in a performance gap between the Junior High School and heavy metal charm since her days as a 13 year-old.
As Yuimetal becomes a 17 year-old girl, BABYMETAL grows towards the world but also internally. Images have been posted in their official Twitter account which seem to represent Yuimetal's growth. Among them: "Yui-chan Happy Birthday. I really admire you very much!! BABYMETAL doesn't seem to have the same age to the world". Blessings arrive to birthday celebration, "You have become big!", "You will become a very wonderful woman. Going forward with the aim of being a super lady in your envision of a smiling face by the Sakura Gakuin's soul." (Tweets in Japanese).
Feelings of loneliness in the celebration were also found. A person wishes: "Happy 17th to my ‘you will always be tiny to me’ Yui.. now stop growing up!" (Tweet in English)
Su-Metal, who is now currently a 18 year-old girl is not in disconfort with being the older sister, since she has been in this positiion from the very beginning. Moametal, same as Yuimetal, becomes 17 years old on July 4. When Becoming mature, it will be a challenge for BABYMETAL to get a balance on how charming will the three girls become.
